Unforced Error: Agassi Admits Meth Use

Tennis superstar Andre Agassi says he used the drug crystal meth in 1997, before spiraling to 141st in world tennis rankings later that year. The stunning admission comes in an upcoming autobiography.
In a excerpt published in the Times of London, Agassi says he lied to tennis officials after failing a drug test, saying he accidentally drank from an assistant's soda spiked with the highly addictive drug. They believed him.

Agassi is not the first star athlete/role model to abuse dangerous drugs and lie about it - and certainly won't be the last. We want to know what you think. Are you shocked by the news, or is it just another celebrity-gone-bad story? Share your thoughts and comments.
